Get closer to the action than ever before by mastering the skills required to play like a real professional football player in FIFA 08.

From the moment you step on the pitch, FIFA 08 challenges you to think and react like a real football player by giving you complete control over all of the action. Control the goalkeeper in one-on-one situations to deny the striker yourself, position the goalie exactly where you want on corners, and take complete control to make the save on free kicks. It's now all up to you!

Use the stylus and touch pad for ultimate control on free kicks and penalty kicks. Run up and strike the ball, curling a shot around the wall and into the goal. On defence, take control of your goalie and command the wall at the most crucial times. Master your nerves and perfect your shot on penalty kicks to win glory for your club in a new Penalty Shoot-Out mode.

This year it is more strategic to break down the opposition than ever before with new defensive and positioning logic that ensures players are in the right place at the right time, constantly considering all threats and opportunities.

Intelligently manage your club by preparing for each specific opponent using new custom formations. Design your own unique strategy to create the perfect formation and tactics. Assign roles and move players to the exact position in relation to team-mates to undermine the opposition.

In addition, FIFA 08 is dramatically more real and exhilarating with the inclusion of 30 official leagues and more than 14,000 players all accurately re-created.

Manual Goalkeeper Control: Control the goalkeeper in one-on-one situations to deny the striker yourself.

Enhanced AI: New defensive and positioning logic requires greater tactical expertise to break down the opposition. New AI ensures players are in the right place at the right time. Player and team traits differentiate the stars.

    Custom Formations: Design your own unique strategy to create the perfect formation and tactics. Set each player's exact position in the formation, and assign specific attacking and defensive runs to unlock the opposition.

      Scenario Sharing: Challenge friends with personalized scenarios via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection or by generating unique codes you can input into your Nintendo DS.

        New Touch Screen Controls: Use the stylus and touch pad for ultimate control on free kicks, penalty kicks, and saves. Run up and strike the ball, curling a shot around the wall and into the goal. On defense, take control of your goalie and command the wall.

                First of all I am a massive fan of pro evo, and have probably only had two or three matches on a Fifa game in my life...Until now! Football games on the DS are usually (In my opinion) pretty basic, and hard to control with the limited D pad. They also tend to be very arcadey and often lack any feeling of control over your team. I have Pro evo 6 on the DS and I found this OK. But in my mission to find the ultimate footy game for nintendo's perfect handheld I decided to take the plunge and sample a Fifa game. And sweet lord how pleased I am that I did! This game is Awesome. The graphics are great, with players that have actual faces (Unlike the blocky clones of DS pro evo) and great effects like falling rain and snow. The animation of the teams is top and they move dodge and strike the ball superbly. the sound is fantastic with full commentry and great stadium sfx. But above all else is how well this game plays. I was blown away by the feeling of control over the players, they do exactly what you command. shimmying past opponents, passing accurately and meeting through balls exactyly. Striking the ball is also a joy, and the great game engine means anything could happen, and this leads to some wonderful realistic results. In my few matches so far I have scored long range goals, headed goals, and overhead attempts! The ball clangs off the crossbar, rebounds off other players and the unpredictable AI means own goals and goalkeeper fumbles are also a possibility. In short the physics are perfect. There are also a great range of options too, with all the cups and leagues you could desire. The bottom line is that this game is great fun to play, with total team control and a realistic feel only so far seen on the bigger console versions. I was shocked by it because it is a game that should simply not be possible on the DS. But it is. So run out and buy this little gem right now!

                 best sport game for ds EVER!!!

                you have to get this game if ur looking for a new game for your ds it is good offline but when you play it online it is something else if u don't get this u are simply crazy the multiplayer combines multi and single card play so you dont have to have the game aswell. the only down sides are that it sometimes lags on online and keepers take the free kicks and penaltys a 1/4 of the time but u should get this!!

                If your looking for hours of entertainment, I'd definately recommend this game.I had the advantage of playing and testing a friends copy before buying my own, and since buying it have been extremely happy with it!

                As mentioned in other reviews, the graphics are, for a DS, exceptional, and the actual gameplay mimics versions on more powerful consoles, with no holds barred on the flow of the play or any smaller details such as player appearance. Even down to the 'real' music played during the main menu, Fifa 08 on DS continues to match its counterparts on other consoles. Feature rich and accessible, the Main Menu boasts a familiar look to previous Fifa titles, even including Create a Club and Create a Player, which re-inforces the playability of the game. In this release, there are many clubs to choose from, including not only the Premier Division sides but lower division teams as well, which is brilliant, plus teams from abroad leagues. To top off the positives, the Single- Card multiplayer really sold it for me, with the option to play friends even if they dont own their own copy. With this option, plus the Wifi capabilities of the game, which i have unfortunately been unable to test as of yet, this game becomes fun for not only you, but for your friends as well.

                In terms of negative aspects on the game, Im yet to find any which have caused me to question why Ive bought the game! As other reviewers have said, the manager mode is a bit lacking in terms of detail, compared to versions availiable on the psp for example, yet I argue that this version on DS is more of an 'arcade' version, simply as it is so and easy to pick up, and not put down for a long time if the game takes you!

                Aside from this, the match commentary is slightly annoying in my personal opinion, sometimes being infrequent and in no context to actual events in the game. This is one of the only aspects of the DS version which has suffered from the reduced proccessing power of the DS console itself, compared to other handheld consoles. But it is an age old niggle in Fifa games that the commentary is annoying, so I'll leave that to your own opinion!

                So, if you want a game which will spend most of its time in your DS slot and not in its case, then Id recommend Fifa 08, a timeless classic bought to DS and well worth the money! Happy goalscoring!

                 Best game EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
